Online Fielded Discussion "THE FUTURE OF CALL"
31st January - 5th February
"Where has Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) been, where is it
and where is it going?" (Bax, 2002)
The questions raised by Stephen Bax and other scholars are still very
timely. Are we satisfied with the development that CALL has taken? How
we like CALL to develop in the future? Should specific areas be given
priority in CALL-related research? The above questions are but a few
those which often puzzle our minds. What better time to discuss the
than at the beginning of a new year.
Please join the IATEFL COMP-SIG and the TESOL CALL-IS in discussing
thoughts, opinions, beliefs and hopes and aspirations for the future of
CALL. This online discussion will take place on the electronic list of
IATEFL COMP-SIG and will be fielded by Stephen Bax (Canterbury Christ
University College, UK).
The discussion will take place from 31st January to 5th February. Food
thought is available at:
Bax's article "CALL-past, present and future" and Mark Warschauer's and
Deborah Healey's article "Computers and Language Learning: An overview
